Calculating irradiance from lux of a halogen lamp

Hi all. We're currently working on a project and need to know the irradiance hitting a steel sheet some distance away from a halogen lamp. The setup looks like:

The problem is we can only measure the lux at the surface of the steel sheet, and I believe in order to convert lux to irradiance you need to know the spectrum of the light coming from the lamp - something we are unable to do.

Is there any alternative way of getting a reasonably accurate irradiance measurement?
